WE DID IT. It’s March, which means spring is right around the corner which means it’s basically rosé season. In fact, the weather was cooperating earlier this week so Hannah and Michelle got a head start on testing for this year’s exposé. See everything else we’re loving in this week’s And Then We Tried Obsessions.
You Had Me At Pierogies CLE Clothing Company T-Shirt
Hannah and I bought these shirts basically the minute CLE Clothing Co. launched them and since then my sister has also bought one. I don’t wear many novelty t-shirts, but this one just spoke to my soul. Also, now that my hair isn’t purple, I’m allowed to wear a red shirt. Hooray, perks of being blonde.
I finally saw Black Panther last night and it was so amazing! The effects, costumes, hair, scenery, everything was so so well done. I’m already looking forward to seeing it again. What was your favorite part of the movie? Okoye throwing her wig at that dude was a particularly hilarious scene.
I’m going skiing this weekend and have only skied twice before so wish me luck! Also if you have any recommendations for things to do around Holiday Valley or in Ellicottville let me know in the comments!
LL Bean Mountain Anorak
Picked up this anorak for my trip to New Zealand and hoping it makes me look like the cute, casual, outdoorsy lady I’ve always wanted to be. (No pressure for one jacket, right?) Everlane recently came out with a more stylish version which makes me feel like I can’t be too far off base with this one.
Everything I’ll be binge-watching on this long ass flight
You probably already know, but the flight from LA to Sydney is 15 hours. 15 HOURS!! I did this length once before and made the tragic mistake of sitting in the window to sleep but then also being boxed in and not being able to pee for what felt like 12 of those hours. Won’t happen again.
Plus this time I’ve downloaded a whole bunch of things to binge watch on Netflix. Thank god they let you save things for offline watching now. Have you seen any of these? Which is your favorite?
- Dark– Hannah already raved about this one back in January but I’m just getting around to watching
- The Young Victoria
- The Boss Baby– Mainly so I can understand the quotes my friend’s kid is always telling me
- Seeing Allred
- Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Season 3
After hearing about how great the new Queer Eye is from my mom, then receiving a Snapchat from friend-of-the-blog Alisa of her literally crying watching an episode, I finally jumped into it. I love a good makeover show and I was expecting it to be a lighthearted journey of self-improvement for some sadsack dudes. Instead, I got served more emotions than I knew what to do with. Thought you were going to watch a southern dad get upgraded from his depressing outfits to a nice suit? Yeah, you’ll get that, but with a side of discussing the relationship between black men and police officers in the south. Want to watch a self-conscious engineer glow up into the beautiful man he is? Great, but get ready for some conversations about what being a gay man really means. THE TEARS YOU GUYS. Get watching, but keep the tissues handy.
Completing my transformation into an elderly woman
I’ve long maintained that I was born age 65 and just continue to get older.
Well, it turns out my body has finally caught up with my mindset. Just like everyone’s favorite nursing home resident, I came down with shingles this week. SHINGLES. LIKE A 95-YEAR-OLD WOMAN. I don’t even know what to say. It’s painful and annoying. Fun fact though, if you’re ever looking to self-diagnose shingles of your own, the rash will only stay on one half of your body. If you were to draw a line down the middle of your body, the shingles will never cross the midpoint. I thought that was really interesting, and it explained why it took the doctor all of 30 seconds to diagnose me upon seeing my diseased torso. Anyways, if you need me I’ll be playing bingo before my early bird dinner special.
